The European Union and Council of Europe decided to extend the Partnership for Good Governance programme to help strengthen human rights, democracy and the rule of law in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
The second phase of the programme, wich worth €17.5 million between 2019 and 2021, has been launched at a ceremony in Brussels on 7th May 2019. The Partnership for Good Governance aims at helping the EU’s six Eastern partner countries to move closer to European standards.
Working closely with national authorities and other stakeholders, the programme helps to bring
changes to laws and practices through reviews of legislation, improving the efficiency of public institutions, training courses for professionals and the sharing of information, experiences and best practices.
The first phase of the programme, which included 50 country-specific and multilateral initiatives, ran from 2015 to 2018.
